Korean developer AcroGames, comprised of contributors to NCsoft's Lineage II
(pictured) and Softmax's Magna Carta
, has announced that it has licensed Unreal Engine 3 from Epic Games for an unannounced project.
In addition, Gamasutra contacted Epic to discover whether the company was working on an online PC game or a console game, and Epic noted that this new Unreal Engine 3 project is an online PC title, presumably (though not confirmedly) an MMO.
According to AcroGames CEO HyunTae Jeong, the studio has worked with previous releases of the Unreal Engine in the past, and called the employees' previous work with Epic's engine "positive experiences."
Said Epic vice president Jay Wilbur, “AcroGames is a promising team comprised of top talent and we look forward to working with them. We are committed to supporting the Asian game market with best of breed development tools, and our agreement with AcroGames marks a significant achievement in this effort.”
